Well I have long skinny mini kiddos! This makes it difficult with a lot of sewing patterns… even the good ones being wide. Well for a while I have been wanting to make the girls a bunch of basic leggings to layer with skirts, dresses, jumpers & pinafores. So I dug out one of my favorite Ottobre’s (4/2004) that has both toddler & girls leggings in it, this issue is worth having for all the basics. Anyways I opened it up to trace it & decided to put a pair of their good fitting leggings next to it to see what I would get! To my disappointment it wasn’t the leggings pattern I was looking for cause the legs were wide and looser then I was looking for. I wanted nice fitted leggings made with fabrics with lots of stretch! So I decided what the heck & winged it! I considered tracing & modifying the Ottobre pattern but it needed so much that it wasn’t worth it. Anyways 30 minutes of drawing, cutting & sewing later I have 2 pairs of great fitting leggings! Just what I wanted 🙂 though I did this at 11 at night, so I had to wait ’til morning to try them out. I now plan on making a some flared yoga style leggings as well, cause I think they are just too stinking cute! Well enough of the chatting, time for the action shots!
